     Join Jane Crowfoot and her assistant for the weekend and fellow designer Sarah Hazell for a fun crochet workshop weekend by the sea!

    The weekend will start with drinks, a meal and informal introductions and over the course of the weekend you will be offered the chance to wander around town or take a stroll along the seafront, visit the local art gallery and of course knit and crochet. You might even want to book tickets for a show – Il Divo will be in town on the Saturday evening so you could see if you can get some tickets!

    Jane and Sarah both have an impressive teaching history having worked as Rowan Design Consultants and independent designers within the hand knitting and crochet fields over the years. They have been great friends for a long time and have taught alongside one another often forging a great working relationship, which allows workshop participants to feed from their impressive technical knowledge of crafts as a whole.

    Jane will design a small project for you to work through over the course of the weekend and both she and Sarah will be on hand to guide you through an array of techniques, typically including beading and colour work. If you would rather bring along and work through your own project surrounded my like minded people please feel free to do so.

    This workshop is aimed at crocheters who know their basic techniques and can read a written pattern. The workshop is not aimed at beginners, but the focus of the workshop is learning new techniques and neat little tricks to help you work in the right way.

    Please note that unlike previous Inspired Minds weekend workshops, which have focussed on the crafts of hand knitting and crochet, this weekend is aimed at crocheters only.

     Marsham Court Hotel

    Edging the beautiful Dorset coast and sparkling sea, the Marsham Court Hotel Bournemouth is a relaxing full-service hotel. A refreshing blend of contemporary design and friendly seaside ambiance, the hotel offers a welcoming retreat for groups and family holidays. Experience a haven of hospitality and impeccable service and stunning views across Bournemouth bay

    We have chosen this hotel as it is situated on the coastal cliff road in Bournemouth, just a 5 minute walk from the golden beaches and directly opposite the Russell Cotes Museum/art gallery and the Spindles Health Spa.

    Health Spa:

    If you fancy a bit of a pampering during your free time there are two health spas within 5 minutes walk form the hotel.

    The Spindles Health Spa is in the grounds of the Royal Bath Hotel and the entrance is just across the road from the Marsham Court Hotel. To view treatments CLICK HERE

    The Forever Gorgeous Spa can be found in Queens Hotel and you can see details by CLICKING HERE

    Project

    A project yarn pack will be available for you to work through during the weekend. In the past, most workshop participants do choose to work on the project, but it is not compulsory. We are more than happy if you would prefer to bring your own WIP and work on that instead in a friendly environment surrounded by like minded people.

     

    Non Workshop Participants

    If you would like to bring along a non workshop participant to share your room then purchase a Double/Twin room with single occupancy supplement and then follow THIS LINK to add a partner to your room.

    Your partner will be entitled to the sparkling wine reception, breakfast, lunch, dinner and the tea & coffee during the day. 

    There are plenty of things in Bournemouth to keep a partner busy while you are in the workshop.
